The Communist Party of Malta welcomes the introduction in Malta of Civil Union. The vote taken in parliament is of historic importance as this will eliminate once and for all, state discrimination against LGBT persons, discrimination that was only fuelling the seeds for homophobic acts in society.
"The Party also commends Government's decision to include in the legislation the right of adoption. This will safeguard the interests and dignity of that child when the biological parent in the family dies".
The Communist party considers the position taken by the opposition party as a very weak one and that does not help to end discrimination against LGBT persons.
